Looks like Birth A.D. are now streaming the title track for the upcoming album "I Blame You" - if this track and the interview (which implies it will include re-recorded Stillbirth tracks - "DRI style") are any indication, I expect this to be the album of the year.

Does Entombed count even if their other stuff on their first two albums isn't totally garbage? (just boring)
So what albums did you get rid of?
Basically anything that wouldnít qualify as classic/near-classic status after a certain point. I simply donít have time for anything less these days. Of particular note would be the first two by Napalm Death, post-Legion Deicide, Summoning (minus their 3 best works), post-In the Nightside Eclipse Emperor, Krieg and any French LLN bands etc. One might add that some of these are ok but when I only listen to 1-2 albums every couple of days itís naturally not going to be sub-par stuff (if metal at all). Other stuff like early Napalm Death was enjoyed at the time but now seems thoroughly transient (Oddly enough I still get a lot out of Ildjarn).
So why do I torture myself with a trip into the city, knowing Iíll have to endure interaction with the most appalling examples of hipsters and other neurotics, in the end getting maybe $30 total for these little treasures I collected in my teens (obviously before internet eliminated the risk of chance-buying). Well, perhaps Iím lazy and impatient, not being bothered to list them on discogs.com, getting rid of one at a time over the span of several months (or years more likely). But I also need space in my CD rack to put something better.
I also hope these albums might serve as a stepping stone to the person that buys them, or that by chance they would trace it back to better works if they find something in it.
Which 3 Summoning's would you consider the worthy ones? I assume Nightshade Forests for sure but feel the other two could go anyway between Dol Guldur, Stronghold, Minas Morgul, or Oath Bound.

Not only is Morbid Visions one of the best death metal albums of all time in my opinion, but it's criminally unrecognized. Death fans in particular tend to point out Possessed's plethora of speed metal elements in their argument that SBG was the first true death metal albums, but that point, whether true or not, falls flat when you actually analyze Morbid Visions and not dismiss it as speed metal just because of what came later.
